Hi There, its sounds to me your Lens is failing. You can try to clean it but be gentle. Remove the pasitc latch over your lens, unplug it first. Check to see the lens should be nice and shiny like a diamond if you see dust on it thats your problem. Clean with a clean ear cleaner "cotton on a stick" use Metholated spirits. Clean gentle make circler motion dont press to hard. If problem still not solve you will need to replace the lens.

Hope you come right

Thank You

HI 
IT IS THE Laser spindle motor. Make sure to get one with the same length shaft - will cost $3 or $4 max and a bit of soldering after removing the drive unit.Or if you can't find one, a new complete laser assembly will have a new spindle motor already fitted - price depends on model of laser.

    Although there are many things that could cause this problem, there are three that are the most common. 


    They are... Bad laser, dirty laser lense, or bad spin motor. You have already removed the top cover, but be careful never to power up the unit with the laser lense exposed, or you will be performing home laser eye surgery on yourself with very bad results!



    When you close the CD drawer, listen carefully to make sure the loading motor stops...if the belt is slipping, the mech never gets the "drawer closed" signal, and the disk will not spin. If the drawer is closing ok, listen for a faint "ticking" sound, this is the laser lense going up & down trying to focus on the disk. If you hear that sound, but the disk doesn't spin, try gently spinning the disk clockwise with your finger.. if it starts to spin & finds the directory, then the spin motor has developed a dead spot, and the unit may work fine several times until it lands in that same spot again. If that is the case, the spin motor must be replaced. To clean the laser lense, you will need some rubbing achohol & cotton swabs. Make sure it is at least 70% USP not the dollar store suff, (50% water). I'm not familiar with your model, but likely you will have to remove a cover that holds the clamping ***'y that is usually a round piece with a magnet inside that clamps the disk to the spin motor. Saturate the swab with alchohol, and touch the lense..the alchohol should cover the lense forming one big drop, then VERY gently move the drop around with the same end of the swab to loosen any debris.




    Then take a dry swab or the dry end if double ended swab, and touch it to the lense. The alchohol, (and hopefully the dirt),should instantly sponge up into the dry swab, then assemble and try unit. If all this fails, the laser has likely failed, and must be replaced & aligned by a competant repair shop.

  • That particular disc may be dirty, scratched, or defective . Try with other disc .
  • Chance of dirty or damaged objective lens.
  • Also you need to check for any bad connections or defective ribbon cable to optical pickup.

My hp pavilion desktop computer says monitor going to sleep when i turn it on


Sorry to say, but your computer needs a complete installation of an OS. Windows updating causes several changes to important system files and nothing should be done at the time of INSTALLING THE UPDATES.
Norton was working at that moment, as you say, and besides, it was optimizing the computer which means that both the Update and the optimization may have worked on the same system files and the files may be corrupted now.

So, you should have a installation of OS as the System Repair didn't work.

At shower time in the morning the hot water varies from cold on one day medium on another and hot on any given day. What's wrong?


Do you share your hot water with anyone? Is anyone washing dishes, laundry, etc before you shower? How old is your hot water heater? If it has filled with sediment, your hot water is limited. Try turning up the heat control valve on the hot water heater, only go up one notch today, then if not enough another the next day. Be cautious of scaulding hot water after turning it up.
